Complaints of litter and weeds on Lydiate street

Steve KermodeMaghull & Lydiate Labour Action Team is looking into complaints about litter and untreated weeds on a residential road.

Labour Action Team leader and Deputy mayor of Maghull Cllr Steve Kermode visited the road after complaints from a number of residents on Nedons Grove.

Cllr Kermode said he could see the residents have reason to complain after visiting the quiet cul de sac.

Cllr Kermode said: "The Labour Action Team has been contacted by a number of people complaining that litter is gathering  in the road and not being cleaned up for weeks on end.

"We are obviously asking Sefton to look into this as a matter of urgency and ensure that any litter in the street is cleared and any weeds are dealt with."

Steve KermodeCllr Kermode said he is now asking Sefton Council to ensure that Nedons Grove is on the regular street cleaning rounds.

Cllr Kermode said: "Residents tell me this is a long standing problem with rubbish gathering in the road over long periods of time.

"You can see that from large weeds which are growing between the paving along the road.

"We do need to see Nedons Grove and the surrounding area being visited by street cleaners regularly, or we will simply end up with a recurring problem."
